Mars In The Classroom
Mars in the Classroom provides an exciting program of hands-on and thought-provoking science activities for children aged 13 to 16.
"Mars is there, waiting to be reached."
Mars, the`red planet', shines with almost a blood red colour in the night sky
- The project is themed around the students planning their own manned mission to Mars, and comprises a series of modules to be carried out in small groups.
- The experiments within each module of Mars in the Classroom can be used either as stand-alone projects or in combination with any or all of the other modules provided. In this way, the educator has complete control over the duration and level of the program undertaken.
- The aim of the project is to provide a stimulating program that can compliment the National Curriculum, introducing students (and educators!) to the excitement of planetary science.
